Android Nougat Update is presently rolling out to devices globally for Nexus labelled devices, which will more than likely make you step back and make the inquiry “when will my non-Nexus device be profiting from the upgrade?”
As we know from earlier Android releases, that question is very difficult to answer for time being, and often rely on a number of circumstances that vary for each manufacturer. As it stands right now, Japan-based Sony, and Taiwanese company HTC, are the only two manufacturers to have confirmed a number of devices that will be getting Android 7.0 Nougat in coming days.
HTC is planning to release the update starting from September it means that those device owners shouldn’t have to wait that much longer. Sony, also stands with a similar statement, but as for the rest of the smartphone manufacturers, official information remains scarce.

The complete list of current Sony devices confirmed to be receiving the latest Android 7.0 update are as follows:
- Xperia Z3+

We can be certain to see the LG G5 updated to Android Nougat, but when is the bigger question here. The LG V20 on the other hand will be the first Android phone to run the latest Android version out-of-the-box when it starts shipping early September.
